Walking the Great Wall

Walking the great wall

A very well organised trip. The walking is fairly tough, but rewarding. Another 'once in a life time' experience. Of course, when considering this trip, you will expect to be spending a lot of time walking along the Great Wall. Therefore the variety of activities are not as high as on some trips, although you will find the different sections of the wall surprisingly varied. I particularly enjoyed 'The Spiderman wall' near the beginning - will leave it a surprise to find out what that is about. The provision of food is well considered. Even for a vegetarian, there was plenty to eat, although there was most variety for meat eaters. As usual there is a lot packed in to a small space of time. I had worried that I would not see much of Beijing with two half days, but as it was, we saw the Forbidden City, walked through the Hutongs of old Beijing, watched a flag lowering ceremony in Tianamen square, went to an acrobatics show and even had time for a massage to recover from the walking earlier on in the trip.

My recent trip to walk the Great Wall of China exceeded all of my expectations. The ten day trekking tour was my first experience of travelling with Exodus; I certainly wasn't disappointed. From start to finish I felt that the trip was extremely well organised, accommodating and flexible. I was impressed by the standard of accommodation throughout the trip and the all inclusive food arrangements were varied and of high quality. Our trip tour guide couldn't have been more helpful, proving actively available to deal with queries at all times. I also greatly appreciated the wealth of cultural knowledge and geographical information that was conveyed to the group throughout the trip. Overall my experience of travelling with Exodus was cost-effective, informative and extremely enjoyable. I can't wait to book my next adventure!

Walking The Great Wall, October 2014

A fantastic experience, and amazing to see the wall snaking away into the distance as far as the eye could see. Certainly a worthy inclusion in any list of the Worlds' man made wonders. Very well worth adding the Xian extension to see the Terracotta Warriors and the city itself.

A very enjoyable trip and a good mixture of culture/history and walking. All done at a nice, comfortable pace that does leave you with some time to do your own things or, otherwise, relax.

The walking was much more interesting than I might have feared because we were using unrestored and relatively remote sections. it was really good to feel that the villages we stayed in overnight gave us an insight (however slight and sanitised) of life in a part of rural China.

This was the last big trek that we were going to do as our age is catching up with us, we found the walk quite hard for us and we were the last all the time. Our team leader Jerry, once he found we were struggling he made a point of ensuring that we were okay and any difficult parts he was always there to assist us. the group we had were absolutely brilliant and the social side of the group was wonderful. regarding the trek it was hard but well worth the considerable effort to complete it. We had a good insight to the local community and the accommodation was good as you were in the local culture and although not the best standard it was adequate. all in all it was a great holiday, expertly organised and great value for money.

Extremely enjoyable and highly recommended trip to see the less touristic parts of the Great Wall. Experience rural China, cuisine and culture. Peaceful, beautiful, lightly challenging and memorable.
